Earlier this week we introduced five of our new Burnt Orange Reporters, Adam, Ben, Chaille, Emily, and Eric. You can read all about them here. Today we're excited to introduce two more staff writers who will be joining the team, Ed and Elena! Please give them a warm welcome as they join the team.
Edward Garris is the principal of a general law practice in Austin, Texas. A Longhorn, he cut his teeth in litigation and politics on the North Side of Chicago before returning home to the warmer climate of Central Texas.
Elena is a proud Houstonian, Rice Owl and Democrat. She has grown up in Democratic communities across the state and is especially passionate for preparing Texas for the demographic changes of the future.
Ed, an attorney, will be providing some great legal correspondence. Elena will be expanding our Perry coverage and also offering insights about organizing across our state.
Rick Perry's got a massive record of failure, and it's going to take a big team to help us cover it all. We are so excited to have seven new folks on board, as well as new guest writers, and some exciting new features such as our “Perry On the Issues” posts you've seen this week.
We all look forward to hearing even more from these fine folks! Please give them a hearty welcome.
